Ready for a breath -taking experience um the country side of Brazil? On fridays and saturdays you experience an european environment in a classical concert in an original organ built in the XVIII century. Before the concert you may also see a church light show, much better than the Notre dame Light show in Montreal. All in portuguese...but even though... More

We recently visited Tiradentes in Brazil and entered the Church of San Antonio, which is beautiful. It is located at the hop of a hill, and the view from its front patio is absolutely stunning. In fact, the city of Tiradentes as a whole is so beautiful. It is a reminder of the Colonial period in Brazil, and its streets... More

One of the many churches of the baroque period. It is well conserved and has a beautiful set of statues and altars inside. Great view from the top. Better be in good shape to hike up, especially on a hot day. Otherwise take the horse service.

You come back in time when visiting the church and to make it even better, plan to visit on a Friday evening to also hear the sound of the XVIII century... the organ concert brings you back in time...

Magnificent. A masterpiece among chuches built during the gold rush. The Portuguese tradition mixed with a colonial flavor and the exuberance that the gold could pay.

A typical Minas Gerais church with gold and a lot of images of saints. But you have to pay to visit it. I do not think that is right to pay to visit a church.

The Santo Antonio Church is situated a little higher than the Tiradentes centre, which makes sure you have a great view of the 'Serra' (mountains) around and the city below. It is in great shape and has very rich ornamentation: woodcarving and leaf gold. Well worth the few reais to visit.

Increadible surprise, a very good local guide , probably does not speak english but gave us a precious tour explaining different interesting aspects of this very beautiful church. Look for Rosaldo and if you are not brazilian, someone to translate. Very worthy.

Beautiful art work inside the church but it asks for conservation and care both inside and outside it.
